Gorgeous, quiet bungalow adjacent to Bell Bay Golf with private beach.
About Denise Allen
Two professionals who fell in love with Cape Breton and want to share it with the world.
Why Denise Allen chose Baddeck
The Grove offers all amenities with a private beach (owned) for guests who can swim, sunbathe and enjoy a small fire. The home is new, modern and within walking distance to Baddeck and Bell Bay Golf. We offer a fire pit on the property for adult enjoyment. We also have little things available that travellers appreciate - spices and laundry soap for example. We know what it's like to organize a meal away from home. No sterile hotel settings here - great views and manicured lawns with abundant wild flowers and birding.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Guests of the Grove enjoy a PRIVATE beach with quiet enjoyment atmosphere, absolutely no smoking anywhere on the property, and no use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Natural beauty and an abundance of wildflowers and birds.

A lifetime experience -A Cape Breton beauty
We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home for four nights on a recent golf holiday. Not only is the view spectacular from the deck and rooms but the home has everything you could ask for in terms of comfort and amenities. Our host Denise was kind and helpful beyond measure and we embraced all the suggestions she provided . It was such an honor to meet her family and neighbors too. This location in Baddeck is a perfect location to explore the island from. Would highly recommend this home as a gem and we look forward to a return trip.
These were some awesome guests who eagerly took in every experience and even shared a tipple or two with us. You exemplify the meaning of good traveler and guest! Looking forward to sharing another beautiful Cape Breton afternoon with you again in 2018. Until then, Slainte! Denise and Chris
A beautiful house, delightful owners who met us and gave us lots of tips. Some lifetime memories of a beautiful part of the world. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
We have been delighted with the incredible guests we've hosted this year - thank you so much for the great reviews and for your enjoyment of the Grove! We would love to see you again, and again!
Denise and Chris
We had a wonderful experience at The Grove!
Beautiful home and grounds! Just what we needed for our family's vacation. Denise was awesome giving us great tips on what to see and where to go and ensuring that we had everything we needed...and more. The home was impeccable and had all the amenities to make it a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Very central to everything in Cape Breton we were able to make the most out our weeks stay! We would definitely come back!
Terrific guests complete with a thank you note! How kind - we would love to host you again next year! Cheers, Denise
Wish I were there now...
“Why stay in a hotel when, for about the same price, you can have a whole house?” That was my thought when I booked the Grove. We had just stayed in a B&B on PEI for several nights and were ready for more privacy and some home-cooked meals. As others have mentioned Baddeck is an excellent base for exploring Cape Breton and the Highlands. (This was our first visit.) It has a good grocery store, restaurants, shops and activities like sailing tours and hiking. We drove the Cabot Trail, having lunch in Pleasant Bay and stopping for ice cream at the lighthouse in Neil’s Harbour. We also went hiking in Mabou and visited the Glenora Distillery, all an easy drive from the Grove. But perhaps the best memories might be just of having an early morning cup of coffee on the covered porch while watching the clouds move over the lake.
The house itself has a large open main room with views down to the lake. It is nicely decorated with modern furnishings. The kitchen is really well equipped and a joy to prepare meals in; the owners have thought of pretty much everything. They (Denise and Chris) were just a text or a phone call away if anything was needed (it wasn’t). The yard is attractive and well cared for, with patches of wild flowers off to the side and potted plants on the deck. We’ll remember our stay at the Grove fondly for a long time to come.
What a wonderful insight into the Grove and Cape Breton. Our guests leave such a wonderful impression with us, we love meeting each group as we did with Justin and Marjorie. Thank you for the kind words and we hope we see you again next year! Denise
The Grove was true relaxation!
Upon arrival, Denise greeted us with a warm Cape Breton welcome. She gave us a tour of the house and showed us everything it had to offer. The house was immaculate, beautiful, and comfortable. The tranquil porch, yard, and view made it impossible not to relax and enjoy. We cannot wait to go back to the Grove next year!
These were the most gracious guests who were a joy to host. We are looking forward to your return in 2018. Our best, Denise and Chris!
Beautiful Home. Perfect Location.
Impeccable, well equipped and beautifully decorated home in picture perfect location overlooking the water. Home was extremely comfortable with no expense spared. Denise and Chris personally greeted us and we're great hosts. This place was the highlight of our trip and I would strongly recommend.
Super group! Thank you for your visit, and for your loving care for our home. We hope to see you next year! Our best, Denise and Chris
